Abstract [sv]

Tänk vad mycket vi missar. Så många människors konstnärskap, historier, kunskap, ljudbilder som inte ges utrymme i vår värld.

I Sverige är två av tio låtskrivare (Sveriges Radio 2022) och tre av tio av de anställda inom techbranschen (Statistiska Centralbyrån 2020) kvinnor. Hur låter de ljud vi ännu inte hört? Unheard Sound vill göra de ohörda ljuden hörda.

Jag har i detta projekt, med personlig erfarenhet av musicerande, undersökt hur kvinnor, ickebinära och transpersoner kan bjudas in att delta i den elektroniska musikscenen för att göra musik- och techbranschen mer jämställda. Projektet har resulterat i en hårdvarusynth som vill utmana dagens normer kring hur en synth ska vara utformad. Ett fokus på tekniken gör att makten över hur ljudet ska låta tilldelas användaren.

Designprocessen har styrts av intervjuer med kvinnor verksamma i musikbranschen samt workshops med en grundskola och en HBTQ+-ungdomsgård.

Abstract [en]

Imagine how much we are missing. So many people's artistry, stories, knowledge, soundscapes that are not given space in our world.

In Sweden, two out of ten songwriters (Sveriges Radio 2022) and three out of ten employees in the tech industry (Statistiska Centralbyrån 2020) are women. What do the sounds we haven't yet heard sound like? Unheard Sound wants to let the unheard sounds be heard.

In this project, I have explored how women, non-binary and trans people can be invited to participate in the electronic music scene to make the music and tech industry more equal. The project has resulted in a hardware synth that aims to challenge current norms about how a synth should be designed. A focus on technology places the power of the sound in the hands of the user. 

The design process has been driven by interviews with women working in the music industry and workshops with a primary school and an LGBTQ+ youth center.
